Just a note for Rango users and the subject commit. I think this likely cleans up performance for most use cases but I believe WDS has not been added to the new driver yet -- if you use this newer driver WDS mode connections will be broken.
Did the commit get included in the Snapshot dated May 30th ?
A quick check of the kmod versions would indicate the answer to be no. Seems waiting until @yuhhaurlin stamped a version may have been warranted, but this does get more people testing the update; at least when it finds its way into the nightly build.
It should be there now. I have not checked inside the snapshot image, but based on the build info and downloadable module versions, the new mwlwifi driver is included in the r4281-09c2f4a snapshot.
What a difference an hour makes. The bots react/wake-up to commits rather than just time? Making nightly a misnomer.
Yep. Buildbot compiles new version after any new commits.
Depending on the pace of the new commits there may also be days without a build, if there are no commits. Like e.g. for mvebu there has been 3 builds today, but no build on 28th

The two-phase build (targat images and packages separately) and the re-use of toolchain in LEDE buildbot makes snapshot building much faster than the old Openwrt buildbot, which always compiled quite everything from scratch.
Wow , that's fantastic !
